What is the Green Bus Summit?

School Transportation News is proud to lead the industry in seeking and implementing cleaner vehicle options for pupil transportation through the Green Bus Summit scheduled for the STN EXPO Reno in July.

The Green Bus Summit takes place on Sunday, July 17, at the Peppermill Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada. Attendees of the STN EXPO, held July 15-20, 2022, are invited to attend at no extra cost.

The day opens with an 8:15 a.m. keynote from David Horsager on “Eight Pillars that Drive Results” and how to build trust among district administration, parents, community members and stakeholders that a green fleet is the healthy, safe choice for students and staff as well as an efficient business choice.

Hear from bus manufacturers, infrastructure providers, alternative energy advocates and bus contractors on the latest and greatest in propane, electric and more options for cleaner school buses.

Participate in discussions with your peers from school districts and bus contractors on how they have incorporated alternative fuels and cleaner buses into their fleets.

At Green Bus Summit, Ink Factory artists will be capturing attendee feedback on what going green means to them throughout the Summit. “It’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch these artists turn words and feeling into powerful images,” said Tony Corpin, president of STN Media Group.

The education continues all day and culminates with an outdoor experience from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. which will feature a green bus ride and drive, Infrastructure Charging Zone, games, food and beverages.

Live music will be provided by Roem Baur, a professional singer, songwriter and recording artist living in San Francisco who has appeared on NBC’s The Voice, the main stage at Super Bowl 50 celebrations, and more.

The Lion Electric Co. is the title sponsor of the Green Bus Summit, with Amply Power, Green Power Motor Co., First Student, Highland Electric, IC Bus, the Propane Education & Research Council, Nuvve, Synop and Zonar joining as Diamond, Platinum and Gold Sponsors.
